Huka Lodge was founded in the 1920s by Irishman, Alan Pye, on the banks of the Waikato River as a simple canvas-clad fishing lodge, and to this day, the size and fighting spirit of the magnificent trout to be caught in the mountain-fed rivers, streams and Lake Taupo itself, attract anglers from all over the world. Using Huka Lodge as their base, and our wonderful fishing guides, guests seek one of the finest angling experiences in the world, returning home with tales of extraordinary adventure and magnificent catches.
For a truly romantic and memorable time together, Huka Lodge is utter perfection. Offering absolute privacy and elegant luxury, bathed in an unforgettable atmosphere and created especially for you to celebrate being together.
“Huka Lodge offers a number of sublime and stunning dining experiences where guests can enjoy romance and seclusion, while luxuriating amongst great natural beauty, exquisite cuisine and attentive service. As the day draws towards evening tables are set, bathed by soft candlelight – either intimately nestled in a room of great ambiance and style, or within the manicured gardens on the banks of the magnificent Waikato River. Where ever our guests choose to dine there is always the promise of an experience like no other and the opportunity to take away memories for a lifetime – memories defined by generous hospitality and of elegant dining – in the trophy room, the wine cellar, the outdoor terrace, the jetty pavilion, the green room and many other equally unique private venues.”
